Caravan Holiday

Do you remember when I made my daughter this pencil case?

I really liked its shape and decided to make myself one too.

BUT

as I was looking at it again I had the thought that it looked a bit like a caravan and wouldn’t it be fun to make a caravan pencil case to remind me of my lovely caravan holiday in France this summer.

And so started a fun few hours cutting and stitching and creating to come up with this…

What do you think?

I used my linen (still in love with the stuff 🙂 ) and some gorgeous flowery fabric from my abandoned Lucy Boston wall hanging.

Then embroidered a window, door and bunting onto it

decorated the back a bit…

Until next time,
